What Food Do You Miss Because Of Your ART Therapy?

What Food Do You Miss Because Of Your ART Therapy?

I miss eating grapefruits. It was a nice treat to slice in half and use the special food to eat. Unfortunately they are contraindicated if you are on certain ART meds. Now I can only enjoy the smell.

Hi. Has Anyone Switched From Atripla To Genvoya?

Hi. Has Anyone Switched From Atripla To Genvoya?

I've been on Atripla 11 yrs with good success & little side effects, but concerned it may be hard on my bones, teeth and kidneys. Heard and read that Genvoya may be a better alternative and not as harsh on my body (especially as I get older . . . 61 now) Would appreciate hearing from anyone who has made that switch and what your experience has been like.

Genvoya Isn’t The Miracle I Expected...anyone Else Having A Time With It And Switched To Another ART?

Well unfortunately @@Genvoya is not what I expected. I have every side effect listed plus a few more. Here we go...insomnia, lack of appetite, nausea, headache, diarrhea, rash, worsening neuropathy, nightmares nightmares nightmares and this strange thing which makes my eyebrows tingle after I take the dang stuff. My ID Doc wants to switch me and of course she says she has never seen this with one of her patients...lucky me. My question is this: Anyone else have issues with @@Genvoya and have… read more

Does Anyone Have A Picture And/or List Of A HIV "Cocktail" From The 90's?

Does Anyone Have A Picture And/or List Of A HIV "Cocktail" From The 90's?

I am trying to wrap my head around what a real cocktail was in the past. When I received my HIV diagnoses in 2012 doctors put me on Atripla, a 3-in-1 pill, that very same day. I have not seen any TV show or movie explain what past cocktails where. In the movie Rent, they say "AZT TIME" but never really explain if that is a three times a day thing or 15 times a day thing. Even in the movie Dallas Buyers Club, they go through a list of the medicine but not dosages or dosing schedule. I believe… read more

@A myHIVteam Member is correct there were no cocktails just AZT of which I never partook of thankfully because of my long denial after diagnosis. By the time I started getting sick, there were other… read more

Low Cd4 Count

Low Cd4 Count

With those of us that lower cd4 counts (its been a month since my last labs and mine were at 53) do you still go out in public? Are you terrified? My doctor told me it was ok to go places as long as i took the precautions (mask, hand sanitizer, washing hands, etc) but i still havent built up the nerve to go anywhere or do anything which is kinda driving me nuts lol. I havent been anywhere since i got out of the hospital at the beginning of april. I was just wondering if i was the only one this… read more
